The same happende to me..
Depending on the system you run Tomcat on, setting CATALINA_OPTS can be 
overrided by catalina.bat or . My last investigating about 
this matter revealed different behaviours depending on the system.
In jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28, while under Windows you can add options in 
catalina.bat like this :
 set CATALINA_OPTS=-Xms256m -Xmx512m -server -Xdebug -Xnoagent 
under Linux seems to behave differently, i.e it seems to 
actually use CATALINA_OPTS  as it comes from environment variable (I'm 
not a good reader of such messy scripts anyway).
I suggest you try to locate where your container is actually started and 
whether CATALINA_OPTS is redefined or used as it comes.

Good luck
